Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Ability to customize modules, particularly Defect Tracking module on company specific needsBy using QC we broke down silos (of teams), improved the organization of our tests, have a much better view of the testing status, and became much quicker in providing test results with document generation.The enhanced dashboards capabilities are useful for senior management to view the progress of releases under the portfolio in one go and also drill down to the graphs.By standardizing our template, we publish reports at the business unit level.I like the traceability, especially between requirements, testing, and defects.You can do your development from start to finish: starting with the requirements, ending with defects, and testing in-between.You can plan ahead with all the requirements and the test lab set it up as a library, then go do multiple testing times, recording the default that's in the system.Cross project customization through template really helps to maintain standards with respect to fields, workflows throughout the available projects.

Cons
The BPT also known as Business Process Testing can sometimes be very time intensive and sometimes might not be very intuitive to someone who is not familiar with BPT.We would like to have support for agile development.I would rate it a 10 if it had the template functionality on the web side, had better interfaces between other applications, so that we didn't have dual data entry or have to set up our own migrations.The downside is that the Quality Center's only been available on Windows for years, but not on Mac.It is nice, but it does have some weaknesses. It's a bit hard to go back and change the requirement tool after setup.Defect ageing reports need to be included as built-in.

We would also like to manage the integration testing end-to-end.
